This photo taken on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 and provided by the Phoenix Zoo shows a big-eyed baby pygmy owl, one of four hatched at the zoo three weeks ago under a special breeding program. The cactus ferruginous pygmy owls are being raised by two pairs of adult owls. Three pairs of the tiny owls laid 11 eggs among them, but only four hatched. The owls weigh just 3 ounces as adults and nest in the cavities of the saguaro cactus. Its population has declined in recent decades and the species is now believed to number fewer than 100 in the state. (The Phoenix Zoo via AP)

Montana's Democratic governor and the Republican secretary of state who wants his job are locked in a constitutional dispute over a measure that could affect whether more bison could be moved to the reserve. Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a bill that would have changed the definition of a wild bison. Opponents say the bill targets the conservation group trying to create a large bison reserve. Secretary of State Corey Stapleton says the bill should become law because the governor's veto letter missed a deadline to be sent to his office. (AP Photo/Matt Brown, File)
